2. Security is nice, but . . .

it stops nothing. We have had officers and metal detectors in our schools for years. Still, there have shootings and stabbings inside our schools here in Philadelphia. To arm more people only increases the possibility of one them losing it and shooting the place up. Wake up, people. Track the guns and the unstable.

11. I know; lived in DC for 20+ years.

Some friends' kids attended. Not everyone 'well off,' but most are.
Quaker origin: Sidwell Friends School

4. By their logic

We should have armed guards everywhere, right? or am I missing something.....? Mall shooting? Armed guards. Movie theater? Armed guards. Restaurants? Armed guards. More guns. Neighborhoods? Armed guards. More guns.

I am not looking at this as a slippery slope argument here. There's no speculation or bogeyman.

This is their argument:
"If only there were a gun in that ____________ (insert location here) this wouldn't have happened."

What shooting related circumstance or location would not get this answer from these people?!
What would the USA look like if this WAS the answer for all the gun killings?

This is their answer. The NRA solution is... Armed guards.

This is pretty sick stuff.

They are allied with a group Fomenting assassination of the first family.

8. I own a gun, but how does THAT in itself make me a foment-er of assassination.

Do I want guns in school? Fucking hell fucking no!

I like to target shoot, that's it.

Please don't be as extreme as the NRA.

9. Do you support the NRA over the Democratic party?

Do you oppose the President's proposed changes to gun law? If not, you have no reason to take offense. If you do . . .well, I can't say what you would deserve without violating TOS.

If you have spent more that a couple of minutes on this site or reading the newspaper in the past month, you would know gun owners are not the problem. Most gun owners support restrictions like an assault weapons ban, but if you prefer to identify with the lunatic right, that is your choice.

14. How did I brush you off?

I made quite clear my post was not directed against gun openers but gunners--a term used here on DU to describe those who opposes any increased restrictions on guns. If that describes you, I am the least of your problems.

17. So much for trying not to offend

Gun nuts by using the term gunners instead. I'll default back to the more accurate terminology.

23. I think he said something negative about guns

when he showed that illegal magazine. I think that is the only reason he got in trouble for showing the magazine too. They were punishing him for speaking out against the repuke meme.

7. How many armed guards do we need in each classroom?

How many armed guards will we need in each classroom? Remember, a half dozen armed and trained Secret Service Agents and D.C. policemen standing within ten feet of Ronald Reagan could not prevent him being shot and nearly killed by a deranged, lone assassin with a single hand gun.

Yes, some do. One is usually enough.

Armed guards in schools are simply not a panacea.

20. I have been against cops in schools for some time. They are often part of the problem

and the worst of the bullies.

The concept is if you make something a harder target, the bad guys will go elsewhere. While it has some validity, it clearly does not always work. I can see better structural features, but armed guards are not a viable solution for me.

16. It's called killing more children

More guns, more dead children. But most importantly more gun sales. Dead kids are great for gun sales, and that is all the NRA cares about.

22. Wouldn't this be considered a teabilly hit list?

I mean what other reason is there to mention their schools other than saying "shoot up these schools?"

I don't get it.

Such fear, all of these gun toting maniacs are terrified of their own shadows. La Pierre is not only cowardly he is ill and requires intensive therapy in a locked down facility.

27. They think we are stupid.

I think most Americans are smart enough to know they are clearly twisting peoples words here. Pres Obama NEVER said he is skeptical of armed guards in schools. He said he is skeptical that is the ONLY answer.

Why not prevent the bad guy from getting a dangerous gun in the first place?
